Solution #1 worked with my MP170 but it could be described more clearly, as follows:-

1. If the power is on, turn it off (press the on/off button).

2. Hold down the stop/reset button (red triangle in red circle).

3. Whilst still holding down the stop/reset button, hold down the on/off button.

4. Whilst still holding down the on/off button, release the stop/reset button.

5. Now press the stop/reset button twice, quickly.

6. Next release the on/off button.

7. Wait untill the LCD display shows “Canon idle” (this may take a few minutes).

8. Now push the stop/reset button 4 times in succession, quickly.

9. Press the on/off button twice, quickly.

10. Now press the on/off button to switch the power off.

11. Finally, press the on/off button to switch the power back on.

This sets the ink pad counter to zero, even though the pad still contains ink.

Remove ink from the pad, as follows:-

Open the lid of the printer to reveal the cartridge track and ink pad.

Winkle out the ink pad, using a pin or a small screwdriver or tweezers.

Wash the ink pad in clean water, squashing the pad to remove the ink.

Dry the clean pad by squashing it between sheets of kitchen paper.

Replace the pad, taking care to fit it between the alignment notches.

Amen!

Error 5B00 and don't know how to fix it.


Error 5B00 refers to the waste ink absorption pads.

Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates error 5B00.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.
